Subject: The Life and Career of Major John Andre
Many months ago I watched an old black and white movie on television (I no longer remember the title) which recounted a part of the Revolutionary War which included the events leading to the death of Major Andre. There was a note in the credits that this person actually existed. I was intreged and went looking for imformation. The internet and Project Gottenburg are my friends.
I transfered this book to my Kindle and have spent many hours reading it.
The book is of course written in an older style so reading it is a bit more effort than modern books. It is well worth the time and effort. I highly recomend the book. It goes into fasinating detail about very mundane things. The section containing the details of a British party is very enlightening.
The book is well written and interesting to read. It offers new ideas about how people looked at the situation at the time.
A good read.
